Sponge different colors over a base coat to make the texture.  Here's a no-pic tutorial for doing it to your walls, but I'm sure you could downscale it to what you need Smiley

You are too freaking cool.  I went and checked out your other stuff after seeing this crazy awesome hat and it's all awesome possum sweet potatoes.  Way to win at life.

But I definitely need practice trimming curved seams Sad they are the most difficult ones to get to look proffessional and I would really appreciate it if anyone has any tips on that?!

I would say your best bet is to not worry about trimming them super close as long as they're pretty even, and just press them open.  If you decide it'd be better to trim them, snip into the fabric the short way first and then the long way, if that makes sense.

How bright and fun! Take a hair dryer to it to get rid of those glue-strings.

Good trick - thanks for the tip!! Smiley

I would use a spray finish or good ol' mod podge to coat the shoes and protect your candies from melting.  Way too cute to risk it!!

Whenever we have cereal but no milk left, I melt peanut butter in a bowl in the microwave and mix it into my cereal.  Then again, I usually just eat peanut butter plain when we're low on food :3  It works with chocolate, too, but nobody I've told this to ever thinks it sounds even remotely good Sad

When I was 7 or 8 we used to make scrambled eggs in the microwave because we weren't allowed to use the stove yet.  Crack an egg into a cup, stir it up, add salt/pepper, and stick in the microwave for a minute.  CLEAN THE CUP IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOU FINISH EATING OR THE EGG WILL RUIN IT FOREVER.  Hahah, my parents started cooking eggs for us whenever we asked after we ruined a couple of cups that way >.>

Pretty much everything is good if you mix it into mashed potatoes.

We used to make cinnamon toast for breakfast all the time because there's virtually no clean-up like there is for fancy things like French toast - just butter the toast and sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon on it.  Toast in toaster oven or microwave (don't use a pop-up toaster because the brown sugar will fall off into it).

Grilled cheese is a college kid staple, I think.  I try to make it a little more interesting by adding garlic salt.  I also like adding salami (cook it in a saucepan) because it tastes kind of like bacon Cheesy

If you have a head of lettuce around that you can't seem to use up before it goes bad, try making wraps with lettuce instead of tortillas.  Also cuts down on carbs, since so much of our cheap food is chock full of them Smiley

Hahah, pink gingham might be kind of blinding for this dress!! XD  That would make an adorable apron though!  I've been planning on going on an apron-making spree for friends for Christmas Smiley

The pattern difficulty level is a little misleading but it was worth it.  Especially since it's so different from your typical dress pattern.

Mom at the park with kids...maybe in a few years >.>  We'll stick with "teacher dress" for now!!!  Hahah Wink

New pictures tomorrow!!

I've had this pattern for a couple of months now and have been searching for the fabrics I want to use for it! This looks great on you! And the cherry fabric is so cute Smiley Definitely a great teacher dress! And thank you for your insight to the pattern, too!

Thanks for the compliments!!  I love gingham for this dress Smiley  Also some tips on the pattern (copied from my response to another comment):

Just so you know when you make the dress, I only did one button/snap at the front to make the skirt actually open, otherwise it hangs closed.  I also added a piece of elastic around the back so the fabric wouldn't bunch up around the bust; I really recommend it!  It makes it a little harder to put on but it hangs better Smiley
